How far along: 38 weeks
Size of baby: supposed to be 19.75 inches and 6.8 pounds, but about a pound heavier than this according to the latest ultrasound measurements.
Maternity clothes: everything except for skirts and stretchy waist pants is maternity.
Gender: baby boy. Judah Scott Perkins. We cannot wait to see him!
Movement: Definitely less kicking.. but still lots of pressure and movement where he pokes his body out of my belly.
Sleep: Sleep is going well.. unless I drink too much water before bed.
What I miss: I miss being able to go, go, go! I have really had to slow down and stay home more lately. I have a bunch of pains and pressure when I get out and do too much in one day.
Cravings: breakfast cereal and macaroni and cheese. not together!
Aversions: pot roast. raw chicken.
Symptoms: You name it, I’ve probably been experiencing it. The most prominent ones are probably indigestion and lots of aches and pains. I’ve had a few contractions randomly and (TMI..) lost my mucus plug! Oh yeah… and I’m HUGE! haha
Best moment this week: At our 37 week appointment we saw Judah on the ultrasound and set an induction date! Having a date on the calendar has been a big deal! Also, I really enjoyed putting the finishing touches on his nursery and spending time with lots of family this past week.
